Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

The chat preview box on Super User, which shows who has recently talked in rooms which the user is currently in, seems to be caught in a rift of the space-time continuum. Several times today I have noticed it saying that a user will speak in anywhere from 0 to 20 seconds. I took a screenshot as an example:

In the future

I'm not sure if the time isn't synchronized between the chat site and the main site or if there's something else causing it, but it is certainly a bit eerie being told that I will talk in 15 seconds.

That sounds like a feature not a bug. Question is... do you actually talk in the 15 seconds? Maybe it is giving you a command. – Beth Whitezel Dec 24 '10 at 4:52

Ah, looks like db1 was not correctly pointing to our internal NTP source -- fixed.
